The aim of the exchange project has been to make transparent the innovative practice and training approaches in Birmingham. Most important has been to give the participants the opportunity to understand the bandwidth of community mental health nursing and the indispensable connected qualification measures.

The close interlocking of theory and practice in Birmingham ( close collaboration between UCE and the mental health trust) gave important ideas how theoretical knowledge can be put into practice.
